So Far So Good

It's Friday evening here and I've been able to keep my promise to myself that there will be no socializing this weekend. There's rugby tomorrow morning, BUT I'll be watching it from the comfort of my couch. We are experiencing the coldest days of our winter at the moment and I'm not a lover of the cold. I'm dressed like an Eskimo and only go outside to take out the garbage.

-5 Deg C is definitely not for me. I know it's mild compared to some parts of the world, but my blood only likes hot weather.

I'm crazy for motorcycling and I'm a member of an awareness campaign called Think Bike. Basically what we're trying to achieve is awareness by car drivers of bikes that are so much smaller and faster than cars to elliminate senseless accidents. So when you drive, always check in your mirrors for that single headlight before you turn or change lanes. Because of this I'm also on our biker assist list and got called out to an accident at 05:00 this morning. Thank goodness both the rider and driver were OK and the rider only sustained minor injuries, but his bike is trashed, This was a case of the driver having worked the night and not being as aware as he should have been and he drifted in front of the bike. Luckily the young man was on his way to work and very alert and he could avoid having a far more serious accident. But it was exceptionally cold and since then I haven't been able to warm up.

Well that's enough of my complaints about the cold and I'll get straight onto the freebie. Anne_Ominous left a note that she'd like something with American Cocker Spaniels. I love "cockeyed" spaniels LOL. I have a miniature of my own called Venus and as soon as I can get her to sit still long enough, I'll post a photo of her. I love her to bits, she has the heart of a Rottweiler. I hope you like this little mini Anne_Ominous. It's 7 chipboard dog elements and 3 matching papers.

Here's a little preview

You can get it here And I'd like to thank everyone that downloads my goodies, but especially those that leave a comment. It makes a designer's heart feel good when we read the comments.

Have a great weekend and remember to THINK BIKE.
